be used as a pretext by russia to send in the troops to protect them which is how they describe it. how far can the ukrainian government and military push this without risking the full-on by russian troops? it's been concern all along. it's why we've seen such a timid response from the ukrainian military and security agent in general including police here. it is the big question at this point. will the ukrainian military now hold its ground and try to push further into sloviansk or in places like this in donetsk where pro russian groups are in charge of administration buildings here and other cities in eastern ukraine. is this simp will yly going to push forward and pull back? we'll wait and see. it seems to be the most significant operation so far. >> sarah, thank you for joining us. we'll keep you up to date with all developments in eastern ukraine here on bbc world news. >>> australian official heading the searching for mh 370 says it could take up to a year to find the missing plane. houston is confident his team is looking in the right area in the indian ocean. no debris has been f

obama hosts german chancellor angela merkel at the white house. tougher sanctions against russia could be on the table, all this happening as the violence in ukraine escalates dramatically overnight. cnn has been monitoring a large-scale military operation being launched by the ukrainian military, all while russian president vladimir putin is calling on kiev to withdraw its troops from southeast ukraine, withdraw its troops from its own country, if it wants to keep peace. let's get more on today's meeting between the president and angela merkel. senior white house correspondent jim acosta filed this report. >> reporter: john and christine, german chancellor angela merkel's visit to the white house comes at a critical time. both the u.s. and germany have tried to apply pressure on russia to try to de-escalate the crisis in ukraine, the u.s. taking the lead on sanctions, while chancellor merkel has tried to use her closer relationship with russian president vladimir putin to resolve the crisis, but it's not clear whether those closer ties are helping. in a phone conversation that the two
this is nato allies, particularly those close to russia and ukraine, have requested a more robust nato presence including larger permanent deployments on their soil. these additional troops will come from u.s. forces already in europe. the british may also be contributing. this as it's becoming clearer inside ukraine that the government there is unable to police and control its own territory. as pro-russian militants expand their armed action across the eastern part of the country. in the scenes of escalating violence in eastern ukraine, this one is particularly sobering. the ukrainian riot police sent in to remove pro-russian militants from city of donestk were instead removed, themselves, chased away and later stripped of their shields, bat batons, even their bulletproof vests. the militants were left to bust down doors and shatter windows. pro-russian militants are steadily seizing control of communities a cross eastern ukraine. slavyansk is under control. as are police headquarters and city halls in ability oaeight o eastern towns and cities. ukrainian officials say they're powerless to sto
tried to give russia a chance, too. you said some encouraging things about putin early on in your term. >> i did? >> i know you came to change your view a bit. did you misjudge him early or were you just trying to open the door? >> i think he changed. of course presidents should open the door and give people a chance, except for the despicable tyrants. at that time it looked like he wanted to work with the west. my first conversation i had with him, we were discussing soviet era debt that saddled the russian federation. he was opening dialogue. then the price of oil went up. and vladimir putin changed. he became, you know, he began to suspend the press. not suspend, eliminate the independent press. >> you think it was tied to the money coming in. >> i think it changed his attitude. i think it emboldened him to follow an instinct that is pretty much zero sum, you know? i win, you lose, and vice versa. i tried to convince him, i'm sure the president has, that we both should win. by both nations doing well, our people do well. it seems like vladimir putin takes a different attitude about
